Delocalizers

From SC4 Encyclopaedia

Jump to: navigation, search

The Delocalizer file tells the game what characters it can and can't localize to the player's language. It is important that this is included with plugins and in SimCityLocale.dat due to those files containing LTEXTs which are unicode and are applied to this. The TGI for the Delocalizer is 2026960b 6a231eaa 0a6df4df, which places it as an LTEXT file itself, however it cannot be read as a plain text file like an LTEXT can.
